Wolves' Noah Vonleh remains prepared as he sits on bench

PHOENIX – Before every game, there’s usually a TV turned on to film of the Timberwolves opponent that night.

Pregame can be a busy time, with players warming up and getting treatment for injuries.

But one player who usually stops to take in some of the film is center Noah Vonleh.

He was doing that before Monday’s game at Phoenix, even though he hasn’t been a part of the regular rotation since Nov. 18.

Vonleh hadn’t played in seven of the Wolves’ previous nine games.

He came to the Wolves because there was an opportunity to contribute, given the roster turnover the Wolves had in the offseason, but he has tried to maintain an upbeat attitude despite being on the wrong end of playing time.
